Benefits of the Immortelle Flower.
On Corsican lands, L’OCCITANE discovered treasures with extraordinary powers of longevity and regeneration. This discovery, the Immortelle flower, who's extract is used throughout our anti-aging skincare line, is our secret ingredient to natural beauty. L’OCCITANE has registered a patent on the effectiveness and use of Immortelle (Helichrysum italicum) essential oil. This largely unknown oil has exceptional properties, thanks to its unique composition. Its primary constituent, neryl acetate, is present in particularly high levels in the flowers harvested in the Monts de la Balagne in northwestern Corsica. Neryl acetate gives Immortelle essential oil its specific anti-free radical and anti-wrinkle properties.
